Red, coarse-grained rapakivi granite consisting of large (1-3 cm) ovoid alkali feldspar sporadically mantled by plagioclase, interstitial plagioclase, quartz, biotite, hornblende, and ilmenite
Dominantly tholeiitic basalt and basaltic andesite flows and tuffs; associated with sheet dikes, massive and layered metagabbro, and ultramafic rocks. In northeastern Wisconsin, rocks have been named the Quinnesec Formation.
Volcanic rocks in areas of sparse geologic data and nondefinitive magnetic and gravity data
Gray, coarse-grained (1-20 cm) plagioclase-rich (An45-53) rock containing interstitial orthopyroxene, clinopyroxene, Fe-Ti oxides, and apatite.
Gray to reddish-gray, slightly foliated, porphyritic rhyolite containing aligned phenocrysts of alkali feldspar and lesser amounts of plagioclase in a fine-grained matrix of feldspar, biotite, amphibole, and sparse quartz
Granite containing plagioclase, microcline, and quartz phenocrysts in a fine-grained granophyric matrix. Probably subvolcanic intrusions related to volcanic rocks of 1835- to 1845-Ma age group
Rhyolite to dacite and, locally, andesite tuff, breccia, and minor sedimentary rocks, including conglomerate. Exposed in central Wisconsin.
In northern Wisconsin, granite to granodiorite of varied texture. In southern Wisconsin (not mapped separately), red to pink alkali-feldspar granophyric granite associated with rhyolites of both peraluminous and metaluminous affinities (unit Xr of Marshfield terrane).
Maroon but locally white, gray, and red quartzite (quartz arenite) with a basal quartzose conglomerate. At Flambeau Ridge (Chippewa County) consists of conglomerate. Distinguished from other quartzite units in being strongly deformed and metamorphosed. Includes Flambeau, Rib Mountain, McCaslin, and Thunder Mountain Quartzites of local usage
Gray, medium-grained intrusive rocks, including intrusion breccias. Exposed in central Wisconsin. Zircon ages range from 1837 to 1847 Ma
